    The yonex holo sticker looks good as well as the sunrise sticker.

    butt cap looks fine as well..

    based on the shaft code, the racket should be made in 2010...

    The grommet holes seem to match the hole template on the head paintjob.


    Do you have any closeup pics of the grommets on this 8DX?

    Why did you suddenly question the authenticity of your racquet?

    Sir Avenger her's the photo of the bag
    [​IMG]

    They didn't gave me the usual single racket full covered bag and they gave me this 4-5 or 6 racket full covered bag, and i think when you meet a specific price instead of getting the usual bag, they'll give you a bigger bag, which i got, they even told me to pick which bag i would like to have. the black one or the blue one and i chose the black one.

    by the way it's not a fake string or zymax, its a YY nanogy 98 (red).

    about the grommets it was not a cut, 3 grommets was not perfectly round, it was like the side which the string rest, and i dont know why.

    thanks for the replies.

    uhmm i'm just curious about it coz i'm not an expert of telling its a 100% genuine, like the paint job on the shaft it was not perfectly in the center, it was a little bit moved or aligned to the left.
